Art Direction / Graphic Design / Print / Typography / Front End Dev / Motion & Video
My skill set focuses on the execution of utilitarian design values across as many platforms and places as I can possibly work in. I have executed across print, screens, video, animation, and beyond. Understating what makes effective design is the most important aspect of what I do. As the distinction between print and screen becomes more subtle, as our visual language continues to evolve with technology, it's the thoughtfulness of effective design that I will continue challenging myself with.
Starscope started as a project pitched to Microsoft that was conceived by myself and my copywriting partner while working at Razorfish Portland. After it was greenlit, I worked on the design of the UI and the execution of the panoramic environments with a very talented team of art directors, designers, and developers. I stitched together screenshots we took in the 343 Studio offices into full 360° panoramas that were viewable using the gyroscope on mobile phones. I was also responsible for helping conceptualize and execute the various social media tie-ins for the campaign that followed it's launch.
I have assisted and worked on various motion graphic projects, some of which are represented here.
For the first two, I was brought in to animate some videos that had already been written and designed, and just needed motion. For the third, I was responsible for storyboarding and creating the animation from scratch with VO provided. Please note, the second two are hosted offsite and may require a free account to view.
Inventory catalogue for a large number of additions to Division Leap's Archive. The turn around on this very content heavy project was two short weeks from first meeting to final print run. Adam Davis (owner of Division Leap) and I worked together on finding a good design direction early on, so I could spend a good part of our time staging and taking photographs of every item in the catalogue.

I specialize in freelance and contract work both in-person and remotely. I am capable of working in a variety of settings and team scales, from large groups to individual clients. If you are interested in making some compelling design, please get in touch.
